The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us.

To support this practice, the Shambhala Acharyas have offered to lead the community in a year long series of talks, contemplative and meditation practices from the Buddhist Mahayana teachings of our lineage.

12:30 – 1 Sitting
1 – 2 live-stream talk with discussion/small groups
2-2:30 local discussion group

· Six live classes with an Acharya with an opportunity for Q&A and discussion
· The classes will be recorded, and each will be led by a different Acharya
· Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
· Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives

No prerequisites - all are welcome to participate.
Sign up for the whole series ($50-$75) or pay per class ($10-$15). If the prices are a hardship, please us the MyPrice option to offer an amount that is workable for you. *If registering for a single class, please list the date in the registraton notes*



Through Shambhala Online, these talks will occur on alternating Sundays, beginning on February 10th and concluding in January 2020. Throughout the year, the main practice is tonglen, which will be taught by Ani Pema Chodron with both a guided meditation and an audio talk that will be posted on the home page for the course. Additionally, live online talks by acharyas will introduce and support other practices of the Mahayana.

The year’s teachings are divided into four seasonal themes. Every three months a new course will begin but the program will be continuous. Within each season, acharyas will be offering talks that relate to that topic with their own personal approach. There will be one online discussion forum for each season.

The themes for the four seasons echo the virtues of the Four Dignities of the Shambhala Path:

February 10 - April 21: Tiger, friendly to self and merciful to others: The Four Immeasurables

May 5 - July 14: Lion, joy of discipline: The Six Paramitas

July 28 - October 6: Garuda, space beyond hope and fear: Heart Sutra and Sunyata

October 20 - January 19: Dragon, compassionate engagement: Lojong, mind training
